Modern, Cloud-Connected Mainframe

Maximize the value of your mainframe
data with Ensono’s connected mainframe approach.

Combine cloud flexibility with the resilience of the modern mainframe

While mainframes hold more than 70% of corporate data, the rise of cloud computing AI/ML has made some IT leaders question the mainframe’s role. Each enterprise may have a different vision for determining the future of its mainframe.

For some organizations, the mainframe is critical and here to stay but needs to modernize and connect to the cloud to reach its full potential. Other enterprises want to move away from a focus on their mainframe and migrate workloads to the cloud completely. And still others may be looking for a combination of both paths. Regardless of your vision, the Modern, Cloud-Connected Mainframe delivers a path to digital acceleration and better outcomes.
